Lattice- and network-structure in plastic ice Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys., 13, 19876-19881 (2011). DOI: 10.1039/C1CP21871A Kazuhiro Himoto, Masakazu Matsumoto, and Hideki Tanaka   We have investigated structural and energetic characteristics of plastic ice, which was found in a high pressure region such as 10 GPa by molecular dynamics simulation and free energy calculation. It was predicted that plastic ice intervenes between ice VII and liquid water, in which diffusio ... [Detail]

On the Thermodynamic Stability of Clathrate Hydrates V: Phase Behaviors Accommodating Large Guest Molecules with New Reference States J. Phys. Chem. B, 115(48), 14256-14262 (2011). DOI: 10.1021/jp205067v Hideki Tanaka and Masakazu Matsumoto   We present a method that brings prediction of phase behaviors of various clathrate hydrates with firm statistical mechanical ground adopting a different reference state from the usual one. Accommodation of a large guest molecule ... [Detail]
